Editors' Picks: Our Favorite Yellow Kitchens
Think of them as kitchens sunny side up: bright and colorful spaces where the family can gather and get a burst of sunshine all day long
If your kitchen doesn't get much natural light or could use some visual warmth, yellow is the perfect choice: It's the most luminous shade and not too far from white, but has the added benefit of chasing any chill. Use it to brighten up the space where you and your family gather, and fuel yourselves with a burst of sunshine. And don't just think canary, but amber, autumn leaves, corn meal, the mellow glow of a sunset, or a lion's mane. To get you started, here are our 17 favorite yellow kitchens, from the pages of This Old House.
